Tai Chi, is gentle, continuous movement that has been proven to benefit our bodies and minds in many ways; improving balance, coordination, concentrations and muscle tone. It’s great for people of all ages and can help relieve problems caused by many health conditions. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Harvard Medical School have more information about the benefits of Tai Chi.
BEGINNER TAI CHI
Wednesdays, 9:45am-10:45, Room 206 (RWB Community Center)
Also known as FALL PREVENTION TAI CHI or TAI CHI ARTHRITIS
Each session begins with a set of fundamental exercises to tone and relax the body. We gradually learn a set of movements that stress weight shifting, deep breathing, coordination of hands and feet and flowing movement. Each person is helped to make the adjustments they need for their own body. We enjoy learning together and we never push ourselves to over work our bodies. Everyone progresses at their own speed – no test or deadlines!
Loose, comfortable clothing and flat soled shoes recommended. Please bring your own water. DVDs are available through Amazon, to help participants practice at home.
